The asparagus has sprouted.
I was worried I might fall over with excitement, but I remained upright and conscious, although I did gasp.
They’re so cute.
I’m such a girl.
When I was a kid growing up with three brothers, “girl” was an insult. I threw like a girl. Whistled like a girl. Cried like a girl.
Well, guess what? I am a girl. And I think asparagus is cute. And I’m not ashamed of it.
The roots I planted were very good-looking, super-long roots from Nourse. I think I love Nourse. Check out these roots:
The new sprouts of the asparagus I just planted are thicker than the little spindly sprout of the one surviving asparagus from a garden center pack I planted two years ago.
